We have an old "hog building" that's been here at least since the 70s. We're looking at doing some kind of 'encapsulation' renovation project because we hate putting more concrete in landfills. The ceilings are currently around 7 ft and the interior is dilapidated. We're considering breaking down the roof and building a stub wall/knee wall, not sure of the proper term. Basically we want to frame up a 2 foot wall section that will sit on top of the concrete walls. There is no framing inside so we'll need to frame the walls in and add interior insulation, potentially spray foam. Floors are a very uneven pour so we'll need some kind of self-leveling pour.
The part of the barn we're looking at doing is roughly 116' x 30'.
Any suggestions on pitfalls to look out for, problems with our plans or any other words of instruction would be appreciated.
